Yet another fantastic feature of Office 2010, more specifically Outlook. If you’ve ever spent any significant amount of time, writing an urgent e-mail to someone in your organization only to find out after hitting the “Send” that the recipient is out via an “Automatic reply”; then you’ll love this new feature.
Outlook will automatically let you know that you will receive an “Automatic reply” from the moment you specify the recipient.
Its these little details that make all the difference.
OK, so I didn’t think I’d be posting another one so soon, I get the feeling these could pile up quickly. Anyhow just a few minutes after publishing my previous post, I ran into a great posting from one of my colleagues at Catapult Systems which I think definitely fits in this Office 2010 Cool Feature category, check it out:
